is set to return for a sixth season and the puns are plentiful as fans can expect “some new blood.” Creator Alan Ball has stepped away to work on other projects, and part fairy Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) has seen her ex Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) transformed, so one of the producer’s hint to TV Guide what fans can expect and explain Bill is not a “God.” “We prefer .
Bill’s more than just vampire and has powers we’ve never seen a vampire have,” says new executive producer Brian Buckner. But their not getting on is kind of awesome.” Humans declare war on vampires, and Sookie has to contend with the mysterious Warlow, who killed her parents.
In the eighth episode of last season, "Dead Meat," the pair shared a surprisingly tender moment.
"Part of me always thought that you and I would, I don't know, wind up together or something," she told him. If Bill meets the True Death, as every indication says he will, and Nicole were to somehow perish in a climactic Bon Temps battle, what would there be to stop the writers from ending the show the same way Harris ended her books?
True Blood wouldn't be the first show to end with a glimpse into the future, and if Bill and Nicole were both to die in the finale, it's not impossible to imagine that the faerie and the shifter might find solace in each other's arms a few years down the road.
There's one more factor pointing us towards a Sookie & Sam romance.
I’m sort of defiantly proud of what we did," Buckner said of the episode.
It seems like the writers dropped the Sookie and Sam pairing fairly early on, so why would they go back to it at this late hour?The vampires are out of the picture — Bill has been staked through the heart by Sookie at his request, while Eric is running a multimillion-dollar blood substitute company and Fangtasia with Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten). Buckner defended the decision not to pair Sookie off with either vampire."I don’t think there was a lot of talk about the end game other than people sitting around in a room going, ' Bill or Eric? '" he said in a conference call with reporters. Neither, because she's an independent woman who doesn't need a man? True Blood has been about a lot of things during its seven seasons, but at its core it's always centered around the tangled love life of half-faerie half-waitress Sookie Stackhouse.Actually, maybe I'm too anxious to wait for the episode to air on Sunday.
